Release: Phillips Calls for New “Truth in Political Advertising” Effort, Challenges False Ads

Dean Phillips challenged the false TV ads being run by and for Congressman Erik Paulsen and offered a new idea to protect voters from the kind of lies and political distortions that are pervasive on the airwaves right now.

Release: Erik Paulsen Doubles Down on False Claims in MPR Debate

Throughout the third debate between Dean Phillips and Congressman Erik Paulsen, Paulsen doubled down on claims that are verifiably false and added new false claims to the mix.

PolitiFact: Attack Ad Falsely Claims that Dean Phillips Doesn’t Provide Health Coverage to his Employees

The National Republican Congressional Committee has made a particularly incendiary claim in an anti-Phillips TV ad, which PolitiFact rates “Mostly False.”

Paulsen Continues Dishonest TV Campaign

To distract Minnesotans from his own unpopular votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act and increase the deficit by $1.9 trillion, Erik Paulsen’s new campaign ad throws new, deceitful attacks against the wall — and again, none stick.

CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM

I refuse to accept money from PACs, special interest groups or federal lobbyists, and will make campaign finance reform a top priority.

HEALTHCARE FOR ALL AMERICANS

All Americans should have high-quality, affordable healthcare, regardless of their age, condition or ability to pay. I won’t rest until they do.

FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY

I will advocate for increasing government efficiency, generating more value from tax revenue, creating a fairer tax system, and basing spending on return on investment.

RETIREMENT SECURITY

We must work in a bipartisan fashion to ensure that the elements of a secure retirement are protected — including Medicare, Medicaid and support for caregivers.

GUN-VIOLENCE PREVENTION

Thoughts and tweets may offer comfort but they don’t save lives. Courage and action can save lives — and that requires new representation.

JOBS AND THE ECONOMY

I’m an advocate for policies that grow the economy by reducing red tape, investing in people and rewarding innovation.

IMMIGRATION REFORM

Bipartisan, comprehensive and fair reforms that address our immigration challenges will help reduce the deficit and support America’s businesses.

COMBATING CLIMATE CHANGE

Climate change is an environmental, economic and national security threat that must be addressed head-on, and the U.S. should be a leader — not a follower.

CLEAN WATER AND A HEALTHY PLANET

Our rivers and lakes are central to at the core of what it means to be Minnesotan. I will be a vocal advocate for responsible stewardship of our natural treasures to preserve and improve them for generations to come.

HIGHER EDUCATION AND JOB TRAINING

Every Minnesotan should have the opportunity to earn an affordable college degree, apprenticeship or job-training certificate that prepares them for jobs of the future.

WORLD-CLASS PUBLIC EDUCATION

Our children deserve world-class public education, and school districts and teachers need the resources, strategy and support to provide it.

WOMEN’S HEALTH AND ECONOMIC SECURITY

Women deserve equal pay for equal work, sensible paid leave policies, access to comprehensive healthcare, and reproductive freedom.

SUPPORTING OUR VETERANS

As a Gold Star Son, I know all too well the sacrifices made by our veterans and their families. We must take care of those who risk their lives in service to our country and the families they leave behind.
